    I have bronze fennel in the garden and it self seeds all over the place every year! Great as an ornamental and great to flavour stews and use like dill for fish. I never have success with dill - it always bolts before I get to use it so fennel works great as a substitute for me.

    That could be a problem pete with such an early start, I am carefully hardening them off for a couple of weeks to minimise any shock.Bringing them back indoors like last night, it was only 3C.
